hope, love + cupcakes.

a birthday celebration at children’s hospital.

earlier this week i photographed the most wonderful birthday party for joe robert at CNMC! the kids call him “mr. joe” and they were delighted to surprise him in the art center at children’s national medical center with a fantastic party – complete with cupcakes, bubbles, silly string, noise makers, hand-made cards, a super banner, and of course, their smiling faces!

joe robert is an amazing man and one of hospital’s great philanthropists, as well as a cancer survivor. as part of the celebration, the kids helped joe make his own BEADS necklace – an awesome arts project where patients make beaded necklaces that pay tribute to their treatments. BEADS stands for Bravery, Endurance, Achievement, Determination, Strength – qualities which abound here at CNMC in not only the patients, but in all of the doctors, staff, volunteers and donors that come together to treat and care for the children. every time i have the opportunity to visit CNMC and work with this amazing group of people i am touched and inspired beyond words.

enjoy :)
